I ran a unilateral free trade case once... IMR's warning here is completely on-point. Judge bias is huge on this one, and people are super sensitive to even possibly
giving China an upper hand. There's a book from CATO, "Mad About Trade: Why Main Street America Should Embrace Globalization" by Daniel Griswold, that's a nice read on this topic. It's now a bit old ('09), but it provides a nice overview of arguments (and anecdotes) promoting free trade.
I'd be fine with sending my briefs to people about this case if they promise not to laugh at what younger me thought was strong evidence.
